Ashes and rain ashes and rain a windowsill sunrise is all that remains of the night we set afire blue eyes and blue skies let her and I walk the wire from young and foolish to old and wise see us smoothly glide down lover's lane and never mind ashes and rain
C'mon Steam train c'mon steam train carry our hopes in fragile picture frames for the day we long to see many smiles and many miles see her and I feel so free from shy glances to a walk down the aisle and a cozy little house on lover's lane and c'mon c'mon steam train
Dreams they taste so much better when they're shared it seems I found my own true heaven tangled in your hair sweet dreams I can still touch them when I wake with you
Ashes and rain ashes and rain a screen door sunset is all that remains of the day we stirred the embers brown eyes and sundown skies let her and I always remember from lowest lows to highest highs the way back home to lover's lane and stay clear of ashes and rain
Ashes and rain c'mon steam train no more ashes and rain c'mon c'mon steam train
